See more about how the solution works here.

The Blue Planet-MATRIXX combined offering provides intelligent orchestration of multi-access edge computing (MEC), network and cloud resources to configure connectivity for advanced consumer and enterprise services like mobile gaming and commercial construction equipment. It also supports multi-party charging and revenue sharing across Business to Business to Everything (B2B2X) value chains. CSPs and their partners can leverage the full potential of these advanced resources, resulting in enhanced, innovative customer experiences enabled by the configurability of 5G and edge networks.

“Emerging business models between telcos and enterprises require greater flexibility and transparency. The combined MATRIXX and Blue Planet solution offers dynamic orchestration and charging at scale, delivering critical capabilities for 5G standalone networks and cloud computing,” said Marc Price, Chief Technology Officer of MATRIXX Software. “We share a commitment to help CSPs deliver new revenue streams as they deliver increasingly complex digital experiences to customers.”

The two companies demonstrated the solution at key industry events including Mobile World Congress (in conjunction with Microsoft), a TM Forum catalyst proof of concept at Digital Transformation World titled “Supercharged Edge-Aware Marketplaces” and re:Invent 2022’s Industries Interactive pavilion.

“Unifying Blue Planet’s intelligent automation and orchestration capabilities with MATRIXX’s real-time monetization offers dynamic 5G experiences that leverage CSPs’ network and edge applications for optimized outcomes,” added Kailem Anderson, Vice President for Portfolio and Engineering at Blue Planet. “In today’s rapidly-evolving environment our combined solution gives CSPs the necessary flexibility and scalability to provide smooth, real-time experiences that customers have come to expect.”
